Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
I think it could have gone either way. I think Gus won, maybe it's my own bias, but I feel he clearly won rounds 1 and 3. Rounds 2 and 4 are so close I think they should have been 10-10 rounds. I just can't give someone a round for one elbow with less than a minute left, Gus was lighting him up that whole round. If you want to say that Hail Mary elbow caused the most damage, well… You need to take give the first 3 rounds to Gus because he caused a lot more damage than jones in every round. 5 was clearly Jones.

I HONESTLY feel if Gus was the champ those scorecards would have been reversed. Oh well, if anything the fans win. I'm more excited for this rematch than any fight in recent memory.

Round 1: Very even round in the striking department, but Gus' takedown gives him the round. 10-9 Gus.

Round 2: Jones was the much busier fighter and controlled the center of the Octagon. Gus landed a few solid punches but was out done by the head kicks and elbows of Jones. 10-9 Jones (19-19 overall)

Round 3: Easily Gus' best round. He had a clear advantage in the striking but it wasn't as far a part as people like to think. 10-9 Gus (29-28 Gus)

Round 4: Gus was on his way to winning this round before Jones turned it on in the second half. Headkicks, spinning elbows, and standing elbows all made the difference for Jones here. Gus was hurt badly but I think if he would have eaten the elbow at the start of the round he still would have made it to round 5. 10-9 Jones (38-38 overall)

Round 5: Even striking round for the first half but again Jones' kicks pulled it out for him. He also had Gus slightly hurt IMO. 10-9 Jones, Jones wins 48-47.

Conclusion: This fight wasn't nearly as lopsided as a lot of people make it out to be. Also I would like to note that Gus displayed some of the techniques that Jones haters tend to pick on (Fingers extended towards his opponent's eyes and running away in particular). I think the proper score for the bout is 48-47 Jones but a 49-46 isn't crazy considering how close round 1 was.
Stopped reading at the part in bold. One of my biggest pet peeves is the painfully common misuse of that word. The rest of your post could be wonderful and full of incite but I won't be paying it any mind because you have annoyed me as the reader.

Hilarious but Jones wins a razor thin decesion so obviously they need to do it again. Even if it was scored a draw JBJ is still champ. And I hate Bones so I can't wait for him to be rag dolled by DC.
